Welcome to the site

I'm just down the road from you a bit in Stafford. I don't know of any clubs / societies around here...but I'm not surprised since I can't even find a decent lfs within an hours drive. I have heard there's some social groups further up north in the Baltimore area. If you find a decent lfs...let me know cause they're not within site of me!

P.S.- avoid the Woodbridge store and especially Maru Pets down my way.

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.

I was going to a Super Pets in Annandale, but they just moved and haven't publicized their new location.

We bought our pet rats there, and my neighbor has been buying his fish and supplies there for years.

I will let you know when they update their location, but I doubt it is going to be any closer to you in Fredricksburg

Thank you so much.

For everyone else the list is:
  • Patomac Valley Aquarium Society (PVAS)
  • Washington, DC Area Marine Aquarist Society (WAMAS)
  • Capital Cichlid Association (CCA)
  • Greater Washington Aquatic Plant Association (GWAPA)

Did you ever find a good LFS? Maru was a nightmare, and thank goodness that they shut down recently! I literally only have a petsmart and PETCO here in fredericksburg.

FYI Do not go to super pets if you are looking for any aquarium stuff. They mainly have bird, hamster, and reptile stuff.
